Famous quotes containing the word vice:

    It is the vice of a vulgar mind to be thrilled by bigness.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    We early arrive at the great discovery that there is one mind common to all individual men: that what is individual is less than what is universal ... that error, vice and disease have their seat in the superficial or individual nature.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The mayor and Montaigne have always been two, with a very clear separation. For all of being a lawyer or a financier, we must not ignore the knavery there is in such callings.

    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
